On Wednesday, she talked to women workers of Bathinda (Urban) assembly segment, while, on Thursday, she addressed women workers from Bhucho and Mansa assembly segments.She is expected to continue meeting the women workers of other segments in the coming days.
Prior to meeting women workers, she has held similar meetings with party workers of different assembly segments.
